South Korean officials have released a document detailing the findings of a criminal investigation into StarCraft 2 match-fixing. The document indicates the involvement of twelve individuals including a head coach, two pro-gamers, one former pro-gamer, four brokers, two recruiters, and two gangsters. Nine of these people have been arrested, two indicted without arrest, and one is still at large.
Though the statement released by investigators doesn't name any of the people involved, it has been widely reported in South Korean media that the prominent individuals involved are Gerrard, the head coach of team Prime, pro players YoDa and BBoongBBoong, and former StarCraft 1 pro turned journalist Enough.
The ring allegedly worked like this: The gangsters operated as financial backers, providing money to brokers (one of which was Enough) who would in turn solicit match results from Gerrard, YoDa, and BBoongBBoong. Gerrard acted as a conduit to the players, receiving a cut for continued access. The gangsters would then turn around and profit from the fixed match results through betting clubs or websites. Players, coach, and brokers would receive payouts of tens of millions of won, which converts to tens of thousands in USD. Each match was thrown for amounts ranging from $4,500 to $17,600. Gerrard has been charged with spending over $50,000 in illicitly won money over the past year.
Investigators claim to have apprehended everyone involved in this particular ring and seem confident that this crackdown will prevent more occurrences in the future and "preserve the spirit of fairness that is at the heart of wholesome sports culture."
